I decided to FINALLY jump on the 365 bandwagon :)
I also decided that I am going to do it a little bit differently though.
I have too many days of no makeup and comfy clothes to do it as a self-portrait challenge.
I decided to do a Crafty 365!
Each day I will take a picture of what I am creating that day. This way it will challenge me to document everything that I am making, and also challenge me to create daily (that shouldn't be hard :D)
So, here it is, 1/365:

Today I crocheted a ton of granny squares for the afghan I am hoping to make. I was sent home from work today with a fever (boo!) so I had a lot of time to sit around and crochet :)
I am super excited about this challenge and I would looooove if anyone else wanted to do this challenge as well.
I am going to be early tonight, and drinking fluids and eating popsicles. Say a little prayer for me, if that is something that you do. My sister is getting married on Saturday and I want to be well for it!!
thanks loves...
